CERTIFICATES OF APPRECIATION - Now Through Wednesday, December 20th
If you are looking for a way to thank your child's teacher or another Littlebrook staffer this holiday season, please consider giving a Certificate of Appreciation in their honor. Littlebrook Certificates offer the chance to give to three different funds: the Joe Fund Scholarship, the School Library Fund and the Garden Fund. Gifts of any amount are welcome and are due by December 20th.  Details on donating a certificate will be sent home with your child this week and can be accessed here.

 
CALL FOR PARTY HOSTS & SILENT AUCTION DONATIONS
Save the date for our most important fundraiser - our Annual Pasta Dinner & Fundraising Night, happening on Sunday, January 28th. At the event, families will have the opportunity to sign up for parties and bid on silent auction items. Please consider how your family can contribute by hosting a party or donating a silent auction item. All details need to be confirmed by Wednesday, December 20th in order to be featured at this event. Not sure what type of party you'd like to host? Check out our list of party ideas. Email lbptofund@gmail.com with any questions.
 
THANK YOU WITH BELLS ON
What a ride watching The Polar Express!  Thank you for joining us at our sold out fundraising event, "Littlebrook at the Movies," yesterday. A special thanks to The Princeton Garden Theatre for welcoming and accommodating our school and to our sponsors, the Geonnotti and Pomraning families. Also, thank you for our school's support in having a pajama day and handling all of the dismissal changes. 
 
Many thanks, as well, to the Bakshi family who hosted an illuminating fundraising party, "Indian Cooking Workshop & Dinner" over the weekend. All of the proceeds from both events help fund our children's enrichment.
 
SHOPPING REMINDERS FOR AMAZON AND MCCAFFREY'S!
Holiday shopping is upon us. Don't forget to start from konstella.com/amazon when doing your Amazon shopping this season! Also, when grocery shopping at McCaffrey's for your holiday meals, remember to hold onto those receipts!  Send the receipts to school in your child's backpack or drop them off in the PTO mailbox in the main office. In these ways, Konstella, Amazon and McCaffrey's will donate percentages back to our school. These easy habits add up to significant funds for our school!
 
AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES (ASA) VOLUNTEER COORDINATORS NEEDED
Does your child enjoy after school activities? Are you interested in becoming more involved at Littlebrook, but concerned about the time commitment? ASA Coordinators can do most of the work on their own time at any point during the day. Grab a friend and meet with the current parent volunteers to find out more as they plan for the next session. These two parents, who have been in this role for over a year, will be moving on to different PTO positions soon. Please consider helping with this successful and organized program which brings fun, active and enriching activities to the entire LB community. Please email lbafterschool1@gmail.com if interested.
